RNC Police Torture and Deny Medical Care to Non-Resisting & Arrested Peace-Activists


firedoglake.com...

Jason was tased seven times on the street, while completely unresisting.

Elliot Hughes was badly beaten when the cops knocked him off his bicycle. They stepped on his chest, and he was coughing blood all night but received no medical treatment.

Twelve officers entered his cell. Screams were heard for over five minutes. He was tasered three times, maced, and beaten, then removed and the men were told he was being taken to a restraint chair.

These are not Rumors. These actions were told about from many who have been released from custody.

Stories like these about Police injustice at the RNC are spreading like wildfire across the internet. The jails are being surrounded and phone banks inundated as we speak.

People are outraged.
This will not stand.

Though the RNC is over; rumor is that the LARGEST march yet this week will surround the jails tonight as most of the RNC Mercenaries have left, the regular police will be outnumbered.

No Justice? NO PEACE!

This is horrible and disgusting. Civil unrest just might be starting to boil over. I'm sorry so many people had to be hurt and killed before it came to this.

You need to get this message into the hands of the Chinese press.

I am serious. If you want attention. Go there. OMG the result on the world stage where this belongs would be profound!

Problem is are you being pawned?

Someone really close to this who "Knows" should break this to the international news. Preferably a nation like China which the US has accused of human rights violations. But if you don't know your sources are trustworthy, you may be being used to cause violence.

More people on the street will only bring harm. For all I know these guys were going to blow people up. In which case I have better things to do than worry about their health.

I really don't mind if a bombmaker has a sucking chestwound while he is being waterboarded. In fact I would spring for a coffee and doughnuts for the whole police station while they work the bomber over.


Questions to ask yourself:

Were you in the jail while this happened, or are you being influenced by the words of others?

Do you know the guy that got worked over?

Do you know for a fact that he is innocent?

Why him?

Anyone else?

General policy, or targeted with specific intent?

What questions did they ask?

Life is hard, when some yo-yo wants to kill and maim, the guys who stop them are the good guys, I hope they play rough.

Only the direct participants really know. How direct a participant are you?

Well the law sues will be flying too, very soon and as usual as long as the "victims" get paid they will shut the mouth and everything will be sweep under the rug.

But for how long will this behavior be allow? until is enough people fed up to prompt more legislation against the civil right of citizens because after all we can not have terrorist brewing domestically.

I just love the "deny ignorance" folks, that just buy in to ignorance hook, line and sinker.

What in the hell are "RNC police"? As if its some police wing of the Republican party. Secondly, this same stuff was gong on at the DNC and you weren't making these posts. Makes me think these protesters cause trouble at this event for the express purpose of propaganda like this.

nice try, I'm not buying it.

EDIT: I just love the zebra head telling tall tales about being "tortured". One second hes "unconscious", but somehow hes able to keep telling whats going on. I'm sorry, but these people are nothing but attention whores.

RNC Police are anyone hired to Police the RNC convention. Figure it out!

I wasnt making posts about the DNC because I wasnt AT the DNC and the DNC wasnt in my home town.

The title implies they are somehow connected to the Republicans. Not to mention the way you demonize the police and make the protesters out to be saints.

I gotta admit, you're good at fooling the forum with your propaganda. I just hope some will use their brains and deny ignorance.

I will admit, the kid had no clue how to talk in a complete sentence or make much sense. Hate to say it, but maybe brain damage? He said he was punched, fell unconscious then came back to as his head was being slammed off the floor. If he was treated by the police in anyway he says, I can't wait to see them publicly ashamed and prosecuted for their crimes. I hate pigs and people who stand up for their behavior. The ignorance is believing the pigs wouldn't do something like that.

They were provoking, it was obvious. "Who's streets, Our streets!"

The police bicycle marathon team tries to pass through the demonstrators, and the demonstrators shout, "They are trying to Break Through!"

Had you let them pass politely they might have kept going, DUH!
How about a friendly greeting as they pass! You know, common courtesy!

In the 70's hippies gave cops flowers, You give them indigestion and high bloodpressure.

Hello, these people are acting like beligerant jerks and begging for a confrontation.

Like mama used to say, it takes two to tango, you're both grounded.

You just lost all credibility with me!
I don't support violent confrontation, and ill mannered public behavior.

How about innocent people with little ones on the street that day. Do you think toddlers need to find themselves in the middle of a riot!

I'm glad they are there to get this off the street before you start overturning cars and burining them.

They were chanting "Who's streets; our streets" because they weren't being allowed to protest. That is our right as a citizen to protest. They even got a permit... which should not be necessary for peaceful protest. This permit had a loophole that when 5 o'clock rolled around they said the permit "had expired." This is total bogus. They had just organised and were headed towards the area of the RNC when police and their horses galloped ahead and barricaded them on the bridge. THESE PEOPLE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO PROTEST! Everyone please listen... this was hundreds of people who were organised for a peaceful march. Yes there were a few non peaceful protesters but the spin is that they were mostly non peaceful. TOTAL BULL! What we are talking about here is unlawful arrest, unlawful force used against nonresistant victims. YES, VICTIMS!!! And terrorism perpetrated BY THE POLICE.

These police had orders coming from somewhere and were acting as soldiers in an unlawful war. These type of actions are not even lawful for soldiers in a war.

Folks need to remember that the protestors tore up the town and caused an aweful lot of property damage (all caught on tape and broadcasted on national news).

No, I won't be blaming the police for their actions. They did what they felt they had to do to control the crowd, which was their job. They are not supposed to kiss and hug the protestors into giving up (that is the Liberal view of how they want to treat our enemies). Frankly, when protestors turn to violence as they did, they should be treated as TERRORISTS and CRIMINALS that they are. There is NO EXCUSE for the Protestors proactive actions.

Why don't you bleeding heart liberals take a trip to Afghanistan and Kiss and Hug the Taliban and Osama Bin Ladin into giving up? Yeah, I bet that will work. You might find yourselves shot or beheaded in the process because they won't put up with your Huggin and Kissin stuff. They want to kill you because your Idiology does not mesh with theirs.

As for Jason getting hit with a tazer 7 times, he should have backed down and left when the police 1st told him to leave. Standing up to them was a stupid idea. Run away and fight another day.

Elliot was no saint either and you guys should be ashamed for leaving parts of the story out to sell your bashing of the RNC and local police.

Why is it that stupid protestors won't ever go to Washington DC to protest as they do during the political conventions ? Seems to me you would have more affect in Washington DC where your representation is. Conventions are full of plain ordinary folks. Get a life ya'll !
